Landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted was born in Hartford, CT on this date in 1822.
Portrait by John Singer Sargent 1895
"The enjoyment of the choicest natural scenes in the country and the means of recreation connected with them is a monopoly...of very few rich people...For the same reason that the water of rivers should be guarded against private appropriation and the use of it for the purpose of navigation and otherwise protected against obstruction, portions of the natural scenery may therefore properly be guarded and cared for by government...The establishment by government of great public grounds is thus justify and enforced as a public duty."
Olmsted was one of the designers of New York City's Central Park.
